The Parkinson's KinetiGraph has been devised to significantly improve the treatment available to people with Parkinsonís Disease by allowing accurate measurements of exactly how the Parkinson's Disease is affecting them.
The Parkinsonís KinetiGraph system was commercialised by Global Kinetics Corporation. It consists of a sensor that is worn around the wrist of the patient to record data about their symptoms, and a computer unit which receives that data and analyses it. The device remotely records data about a personís movement and via algorithms, provides a report for the their neurologist showing an objective measure of the presence and severity of bradykinesia and dyskinesia, the two key disabling symptoms of Parkinsonís Disease. The device also reminds the person when to take their Parkinsonís Disease drugs as prescribed by their medical practitioner.
